         Note: ADAMS medical diagnosis prior and/or comorbid conditions form is used to
         essentially capture lifetime medical history based on informant report at the
         time of the clinical assessment(s).  The medical conditions data table contains
         multiple observations per ID number since condition forms can be completed at
         different phases of the study. This variable is coded 'no' if the form was
         completed but there were no medical conditions that met the guidelines for
         inclusion on the form.
